Round of 16 2nd Leg Week 1 Results

Tuesday 7th March 2023 

Chelsea 2 (0)-(1) 0 Borussia Dortmund - Chelsea win 2-1 on aggregate

Sterling, Havertz

A stunning turnaround from Chelsea as they overcame their first leg defeat to beat Dortmund and ease the pressure on Potter. The comeback began when Sterling got on the end of a Chilwell cut back and powered an effort home on 43 minutes. Chelsea started the brighter of the two teams even after a ten minute delay to kick off, with Felix and Havertz having chances. Dortmund grew into the game and a Reus free-kick tested Kepa, but Havertz hit the inside of the post for Chelsea. Havertz had one ruled out for a Sterling offside before Sterling finally opened the scoring. In the second half Chilwell stopped Guerreiro getting in on goal but on 53 minutes Havertz scored the second. Chelsea were awarded a penalty from Wolf's handball, and Havertz saw his penalty hit the post. However, the referee allowed Chelsea to retake as both sets of players encroached and Havertz scored at the second attempt. Dortmund had the better of things after that as they attempted to force extra time with Bellingham and Wolf both seeing chances go begging. A delighted Potter and Chelsea celebrated at the final whistle as they look to get their season back on track in the only competition they have any chance left of winning.


Benfica 5 (2)-(0) 1 Club Brugge - Benfica win 7-1 on aggregate

Silva, Ramos x2, Mario, Neres - Meijer

Another top notch performance from Benfica as they ease into the last eight once again. The Portuguese side controlled the game from the off, finally getting the opening goal late in the first half as Silva scored at the far post from a Ramos cross on 38 minutes. In first half stoppage time they added a second, when Ramos beat a multitude of defenders before smashing the ball home inside the area. The second half continued in the same fashion, as Romas became the youngest Portugese to score twice in a Champions League knockout match when he grabbed his second on 57 minutes. In the 71st minutes Mario scored from the penalty spot after Sylla brought down Gilberto but Benfica did not stop there, as substitute Neres got the fifth six minutes later. Club Brugge gave themselves a consolation goal on 87 minutes through Meijer. While they Belgian outfit were always considered underdogs, they have now only managed to win twice in their last twelve games under head coach Scott Parker. Parker was relieved of his duties the following day after their elimination in the Champions League.



Wednesday 8th March 2023

Tottenham (0) - (1) AC Milan - AC Milan win 1-0 on aggregate

After the miraculous heroics of Chelsea against Dortmund it wasn't to be for Spurs as they were eliminated by AC Milan, ensuring the Premier League would not see four teams progressing into the Quarter Finals. It was a dire performance from Spurs in all honestly, as Conte returning to the dugout did little to inspire them. Milan were the better side throughout, with Spurs showing nothing of worth in the opening 45 and Milan happy to maintain their lead from the first leg. The second half showed signs of improvement, as Diaz forced a big save from Forster at the start of the second half and from there Tottenham upping their tempo. Hojbjerg saw a driving run resulting in a Maignan save and although Milan were wasteful, Spurs could not capitalise on the sloppy visitors play. Kane saw a late header saved while Origi came off the bench and struck the post for Milan as the game ended level. Spurs are out and their final hope of a trophy is over, having failed to win any of their last five Champions League knockout matches. As for Milan, they can be proud of the result but their performance was lacking and there are stronger sides left in this competition who could cause them serious problems.


Bayern Munich 2 (1) - (0) 0 Paris Saint-German - Bayern Munich win 3-0 on aggregate

Choupo-Moting, Gnabry

Another year of disappointment for PSG in the Champions League as Messi, Mbappé and co. crash out once again. The two giants played out a frantic match as Choupo-Moting got the decisive breakthrough. He had seen an effort ruled out earlier by VAR but undeterred just after the hour mark put his side ahead on the night and doubled their advantage in the tie. PSG had little luck in terms of injuries, losing Marquinhos and then his replacement Mukiele only lasted nine minutes before 17-year-old substitute El Chadaille Bitshiabu took his place at the break. It was he who lost posession to Muller, who in turn set up Goretzka before Choupo-Moting got to apply the finish. It could have been very different had it not been for de Ligt, who cleared a Ferreira Vitinha shot off the line before the break. As PSG pushed on in hopes of salvaging the tie, as Mbappé and Messi could not break down a resiliant Bayern defence. Late on Gnabry applied the icing to the result as he sealed the result in the 89th minute. Mané also had the ball in the back of the net but it was ruled out late on. Serious questions will be asked of what PSG can really achieve and whether or not Mbappé should consider his options, while Bayern are showing the type of form and strength which could lead to further European success this season.



We now know the first four teams in this seasons Champions League Quarter Finals; Benfica, Chelsea, AC Milan, and Bayern Munich.

The final Round of 16 games will be played next week before the draw for the Quarter and Semi Finals takes place.
